As an individual tentatively interested in providing ITIL training can anyone advise what the options might be to get involved with this?
Liz G has provided some info but that was aimed at company accreditation and before APMG got involved. Also having scanned the APMG site I can only find information for companies that would like to be accredited but nothing for individuals

As someone who nearly went down this route (having had experience as a trainer in other areas), I had an accredited company who agreed to take me on first of all as a seondary/trainee trainer (forget what the actual term is).
The plan was that I would start off observing another trainer and after a period I would present some of the subject matter to the students under supervision from an accredited trainer. After a further period of gradually doing more of the training presentation someone from the examining body would come and observe me in action as well as going through my credentials and interviewing me. Then and only then if they were satisfied would I be an accredited trainer.
I was told that for me the whole process would take between 3 and 6 months.
Silly me. I just read the "train the trainer" thread which has some insightful information.
I currently hold the v2 and 3 foundation plus the v2 support and restore practitioner certificates. At this point I am looking into the possibility of providing foundation level training at our company as well as training people in our adaptation of the ITIL processes (how we do it).
After reading the "train the trainer" thread my understanding is that it would be possible to provide foundation level training leading to an online test and certification only. Anything above and beyond that would need accreditation from ISEB, EXIN or APMG.
Yes, you can train Foundation without accreditation, nothing higher. You would need a Manager certificate or higher level V3 qualifications before you could go through the process.
If you contact ISEB, they have just released a new version of their "Requirements to be a Trainer" document in the last week. _________________ Liz Gallacher,
